CLINTON — The Felix Adler Children’s Discovery Center will hold its annual omelet breakfast fundraiser Sunday, March 24, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The event will be at the Discovery Center, 332 Eighth Ave. South, in downtown Clinton. The meal ticket includes free admission to the children’s museum, and guests are invited to stay to tour, play and explore exhibits and activities.

The breakfast is an important fundraiser for the non-profit organization. Proceeds will go toward producing the wide array of educational programs offered at the museum.

The menu includes made-to-order omelets that guests can build with personalized ingredients, pancakes, sausage, baked goods, and juice, milk, and coffee. Sponsors include Kwik Star, Casey’s General Store, Aldi, Citizens First Bank, Clinton National Bank and Ray Franklin.

Many volunteers will be on hand to cook items, serve guests, and turn the Discovery Center into a pop-up restaurant for the morning. Carry-out meals will be available.

Tickets are now on sale at the Children’s Discovery Center. Guests can save with advance purchase: $9 for adults and teens ($10 at the door), $5 for children ages 4 to 12, and free for children 3 and younger.
